More Fire Emblem: Awakening Details Explain Central Plot

The Nintendo Direct conference earlier today revealed some extra plot details for the upcoming – and highly anticipated – Fire Emblem: Awakening.

Aside from the game’s varied cast of characters, unique player classes, and deep relationship system, the game is slated to boast an intriguing, complex story. An undead force known as the “Risen” have begun attacking, and it’s up to the protagonist, Chrom, to figure out why and stop their destructive rampage. However, another character has appeared in the wake of this new threat, and he (pictured above) claims to be the legendary hero, Marth.

We’re all on the edge of our seats waiting for more details, so stay tuned as we get closer to the game’s release date of February 4, 2013.
